So last night Aaron discovered the joys of teasing his younger sister.

They were both sitting in the bath when Aaron saw some ants floating by.  He let us all know that they were there.

Faith became quite distressed at the floating ants.  I dont blame her *shudder*.

When Aaron realised that Faith was upset about the ants, he started taunting her…

“Ants on your tummmmmy, ants on your baaaaaaaack!”

Over and over.

The more he sang, the more she cried.


Ahhhhh, siblings!
